Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I grew up on a family farm in southern Minnesota and was one of eight kids. I can't think of a better way to grow up. I now work as a professor at a mid-sized university in Minnesota - a job I really love! My three sons and their families, including my grandchildren, all migrated to FL. So I bought and remodeled my Fort Myers home with family visits and my future retirement in mind. While I am still working, I spend time with my family in Fort Myers whenever I get a chance (mostly summers). When I am not there, my home is available for YOU to rent!! The neighborhood is truly wonderful and was the biggest factor in my decision to buy this particular home. Being on the water is also a very nice feature - and with no bridges between my dock and the Gulf of Mexico it's clear sailing!
Why the Owner Chose McGregor, FL, USA:
My three married sons ended up migrating to FL from MN. So it was important to me to have a home nearby for long visits with the family. Also, my parents have been coming to Naples for over 30 years so Fort Myers and SE Florida are a very familiar part of FL for me. With two sons right in town, it made sense to choose Fort Myers as my 'get away' home and future retirement spot.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I really love the structure of my house - it's unique and 'modern' although built in 1955. The yard is probably my favorite part. It's .4 acres and is filled with palm trees, fruit trees, flowers, and tropical plants. There is a tiki hut out near the canal and people have been known to throw a line in the water sitting right on the dock! The house is in a very quiet residential neighborhood and most of my neighbors have lived there for many years and are really nice and friendly. The neighborhood is super convenient to everything from shopping, to downtown, to beaches, and the famous Thomas Edison Home. Thomas Edison is known to have searched all of FL for the perfect location for his winter home - he choose a spot just a short distance from my home. My house sits on a little shady lane just a couple of blocks off of historic McGregor Blvd. and about a block from the Caloosahatchee River. It's great to go out for an evening stroll and experience the spectacular sunsets over the river.
